I'm working on a novel in openoffice.org3.

I was getting toward the end of it but I cut something and then when I pasted it the document went haywire and jumped from 500 pages to over a thousand.

Well I think what happened is it kind of took that part I cut and inserted it in all throughout the document and then added on an extra 400 pages of that part.

It has really messed up everything. So my question is, is there a way to revert to a previous saved version.

I really hope this is possible, your help is much appreciated. thanks!

If you had Tools--->Options-->Load Save-->General "Always create backup copy" checked then there is a filename.bak version of your file from the last save. See http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=74&t=12426 for the exact location which is OS dependent.

I know, it says "You can check its location on your HD in the OOo menu Tools>Options>OpenOffice.org>Paths. Most of the folders mentioned in that dialog are in the OOo user profile."


But I honestly do not see an options. Under tools, at the top of my document, It says Spelling & Language, Word Count etc. but not options. If anyone can plz help that would be wonderful!

What OS and what version of OOo are you running? Options should be the last item on the Tools menu.
